Poker for remote workers takes less technology than you think. There is no reason to be intimidated by the technology or the poker site. You will have a live dealer with you every step of the way and their job is to make sure that you have a fantastic time, so just click-back and relax.
You’ve probably been on Zoom before, and that’s the first step. Join the game by hitting the Zoom link in your invitation (or Teams, or WebEx, or Meet – it’s cool, we host them all). Your poker experience is best on a PC or laptop. Tablets can work too but we recommend against using a phone.
First you will meet our awesome team of fun and friendly poker dealers. They will walk you through getting on to our poker platform. Don’t forget to turn on your camera. We wanna see your pa-pa-pa-poker face!
The dealers will let you know when to open a second browser window and give you the web address for the game. Resize the two tabs so you see your video on half the screen and poker on the other. If you experience a firewall issue, don’t panic, that can happen. Leave your video on the work computer and grab a personal laptop or tablet. We’ll get you set up to play poker on that device and you won’t have any issues. The dealers will help trouble shoot if you run into problems.
Once on the site, the fun begins. You will be able to create a custom Poker Handle. This is your display name at the table, so be as creative as 12 characters will allow (my favorite is GoFeltAFish). The dealers nominate the most creative ones every game, and you might just win the “Best Poker Handle” award for your office. If you want to hear some of our past favorites (and one nickname that we all hate), click here. (link)
That’s all it takes to host your team building event on our poker site. The technology is easy and there are live dealers with you every step of the way. We’re excited to see what you come up with for your Poker Handle. What poker nickname do you like best? Tell us in the comments below.
